So far during All The Skirts: Jocole & Urban Sew we’ve been telling you what awesome, basic wardrobe builders the Jocole skirts can be. So today we thought we’d show you how these skirts can be fun accent pieces too.
The Jocole Twirl Your Heart Out 6 panel skirt is such a fun skirt! The possibilities of fabric this skirt could showcase are endless. We chose two chevron prints from Urban Sew, a black and white, and a brownish gray and white. These are very good quality cottons.
Yes, I know, there are three different fabrics in the Twirl Your Heart Out skirt we made. Because we decided to make the largest size, in the longest length, the recommended fabric yardage was not quite enough. It could also be because we wanted to orient the chevrons horizontally across the panels instead of vertically or diagonally. So we took the two chevron fabrics from Urban Sew and found a polka dot marsala (color of the year!) which totally makes this into a fun, fashion-forward skirt! We love the finished result.
Backing up a few steps to reviewing the pattern, the Jocole Twirl Your Heart Out 6 panel skirt is very easy to sew. So easy that Aria sewed up the doll version of the skirt by herself!
It was her first time to sew from a pattern, and she did awesome. This skirt definitely meets the criteria of an easy beginner skirt pattern.
I love how it looks like Aria is dancing with her shadow in these twirling photos. We were just attempting to illustrate how you can twirl your heart out in this skirt, but the dancing shadow effect is so delightful!
